Re: “Vote Kalb or Wicks for Assembly District 15

I agree with everything you say about Councilmember Kalb, and also endorse him. And if Prop. 13 reform is going to go anywhere, I believe we need someone with Kalb's hard-working determination and skill-set on the team.

But Buffy Wicks? I'm sure she's capable and sincere, however, your endorsement comes down to two things: 1) She "expressed the strongest support for SB827"; I don't think it matters that you think she supports it more than the other candidates, many or most of whom, as I understand it, support it. Many other candidates have experience as legislators which will be needed to keep making progressive improvements to SB827 and to future housing policy. 2) You find her personable (yawn) and she worked for the Obama campaigns and Administration; in other words, no experience as a legislator, the very job she is applying for. Many other candidates are progressive legislators with experience. It seems like all your 'honorable mentions' would be better options, even just based on your own listed comments. I hope voters will take a look at the other candidates more closely; in particular Jovanka Beckles, and the movement around her, should be more thoroughly considered than you seem to have done.

Re: “READER CONTEST: Help Robert Gammon Find a New Life's Mission

Bob Gammon's next assignment: Find out how the East Bay Express' became the un-official mouthpiece of the local pot legalization movement. When citizens reflect on the EBX these days, it is usually about this. Who is behind it? How much money is changing hands? What percentage of EBX's advertising revenue is now from marijuana related ads? Use your reporter's tenacity to go right to the top and follow the money. They will try to lead you astray, or maybe smoke you out to get you to stop harshing their mellow, but Don't Be Dissuaded! Hound Editor Stephen Buel and Associate Editor Bob Gammon until they squeel. You can do it!
